Additional high quality source for 408 CT brass

Horneber has updated their website and is now listing 408 CT (and 338 LM) brass. I contacted Huntingtons (their main US importer) and was advised, "We carry some Horneber cases, but not those calibers. We have to order a minimum of 1000 cases in each caliber."

So...if "you" (we) are willing to get something like a "group buy" going, Huntingtons can get the ball rolling. NOTE: Horneber is notorious for being VERY expensive and VERY slow in making their deliveries. That noted, listing those two cartridges certainly wasn't done for drill.

I have found that, "The Hunting Shack", is one of the best places to find ammo in most any caliber. They make product for several companies and package in both theirs and customers requests. The prices are good and they even offer special brass such as 338 Lapua in Lapua's own brass. They happen to have the 375 Chey Tac that I shoot and plenty of the 408 on hand. Really nice people and ship timely. Best of luck all.

Tbulger,

I will have my 375 CT in three months. Have not seen to many people around that has one. Maybe be picking your brain a bit.

T/H, I'm afraid I got ahead of myself a bit. I should have said will shoot, as I have the Desert Tactical HTI Chassis and ammo but I am waiting on the 375 conversion kit. The 50BMG is available as well, but can't have in California. I'm pretty excited about the project, but with the current environment, who knows what might happen. Please stay in touch, I would love to hear how it goes for you. Thanks and please forgive me.

Hi Sling:

Note that my post was from Jan 2013, not 2014.

Which site won't let you send e-mail, Horneber or HSM (I.Q.Metals)?

Horneber's e-mail setup (Contact page) also seems to be working OK - at least it will pop up my Thunderbird e-mail client.

I.Q. Metals is effectively "the" HSM website - for quite a while now.

Their brass link is I.Q. Metals Inc. - Brass

Possibly you failed to enter the CAPTCHA.

I just sent an e-mail to IQ asking when they next expect to have 375 CT brass and the e-mail went through just fine.
